I’m a creature of habit. I’ve held onto this blog since I was in Peru blogging in 2008. So, while I’ve been reluctant to move from this comfortable blog spot, my support team tells me there is outdated technology here. Like an old blankie, I’m keeping it to peruse old memories, tips and clips. However, if you’d like to see my current blog posts, head over to Wasabi Publicity or Huffington Post where I’m putting to use my masters degree in human development, undergraduate degree in theater and my 25 years experience as an in-the-trenches publicist. Yes, I’ve seen PR transition from typewriters to Twitter. I’m that old. I’ve been writing since my 20’s when I won awards for what I wrote so I don’t anticipate not writing any time soon. (Probably not the most award-worthy sentence I’ve ever written. LOL.) As long as I have an audience, I’ll have something to say (wink). Oh, if you’re into my personal vlog, check it out at YouTube where I have a visual audience who hears about the Spinning classes I teach to beat blogger butt rather than the stories I’m spinning. I love what I do and want to continue to share it with you so follow me on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and any new social media site that’s hot-to-trot these days.
Well, I haven’t posted in a few days because over the weekend I received news my husband’s motorcycle trip from Asheville to Argentina was cut short due to a taxi cab crashing into him head on leaving him unable to walk and to be air-lifted not once but twice. He had surgery on Monday in Lima, Peru where I had to fly with moments notice. One thing’s for sure, it’s nice to work virtually and so I didn’t really miss that much work and am ever impressed with tools, like Skype, that make our world globally accessible through the Internet. I found an apartment in one day’s time with WIFI where I could work and connect with clients the same as I do in the states. Until now through the end of the year, I’ll be sharing my experiences here on my blog about working abroad quickly and with little notice. There are plenty of challenges and plenty of perks. If you want to read more about my husband’s trip, please check out his friend’s blog which details the entire experience, both challenging and funny.
My mother is visiting me for a few months right now. Isn’t it great? Mothers! I love my mother. And you know who else loves mothers? The media. Just today, we got requests from media seeking Mompreneurs — those business professionals who also raise children as they make money. Go figure — couples have been doing this for years, but now moms are taking this in a whole new direction. We represent several Mompreneurs, some who now have book and blog deals due to the great exposure Wasabi Publicity, my company, has gotten them. So, hooray today for moms! Who knew being a mom would also make you an instant media expert!!!
